Susan Prince&39;s research interests are in the history of ancient Greek thought and literature, especially the Socratic traditions. Her primary projects are on Antisthenes and the ancient Cynics. Her teaching interests cover Greek and Roman literature from its beginnings, Homer and Hesiod, to the prose authors of the high Roman Empire, especially those who wrote in Greek.
